As we continue to monitor the Coronavirus outbreak and the rapidly changing environment, our highest priority is to do our part to help ensure the health and safety of our agents, your policyholders, and potential clients. Therefore, we are asking agents to avoid face-to-face contact with clients when possible.
We understand social distancing can have an impact on your business. Americo has remote signing capabilities to write Final Expense, Mortgage, and Medicare Supplement utilizing email signatures. You can take an application over the phone without having to meet in person with clients.
In addition, we are making the following product and underwriting changes:
- We will be adding the following screening question to the applications for Eagle Premier Series and HMS Plus Series. “Yes” answers will result in a postponement of the application process.
In the past 60 days, has the proposed insured practiced self-isolation or quarantine because of exposure to COVID-19 (Coronavirus), or been advised by a licensed member of the medical profession to be tested for COVID-19 (Coronavirus), or had a positive test result for COVID-19 (Coronavirus) reported?
Note: If the applicant answers "Yes" to this question, they can reapply 60 days from full resolution of symptoms or conclusion of treatment.
Effective April 3, 2020, Ultra Protector Series, our face-to-face paper product, will no longer be available for sale. Applications received after April 10, 2020 will be returned. You can still write final expense business using our Eagle Premier Series eApplication with email signatures.
We will continue to monitor the situation closely and will make changes as needed based on the most current information.
Americo is committed to supporting you and your policyholders in the same manner that you’ve come to expect from us. Thank you for your trust in Americo. We value your relationship and are here for you and your policyholders.
